WSAZ NewsChannel 3 believes in providing monetary assistance where it is needed most and making a positive and meaningful impact on local organizations who work with children in our area. WSAZ Children’s Charities was created in 1997 to benefit at risk children. The charity offers assistance to many social and charitable organizations throughout our 33 county viewing area. Recipients range from academic and arts programs, to shelters for troubled teens and medical aid for children. WSAZ believes providing monetary assistance where it is needed most makes a positive and meaningful impact on local organizations who work with children in our communities.
Matt Jaquint, General Manager of WSAZ said "Our viewers are incredibly generous. They have supported previous Children's Charities events and have helped us raise thousands of dollars that are returned to these charities. WSAZ Children's Charities has given away over 400 cash gifts to deserving children's charities through this nonprofit foundation. We are not a Christmas gift provider, even though we do our giving at Christmastime."
For the 2013-2014 funding cycle, WSAZ Children’s Charities is contributing $28,000 to more than 40 different organizations that help and serve children.
